Zach Galifianakis covers GQ, claims Kermit the Frog is condescending in real life


Zach Galifianakis is the cover boy for the May issue of GQ, all to promote The Hangover 2. You can read an excerpt of the piece here, at GQ – to read the full piece, you have to subscribe online or buy the magazine. The nice GQ lady sent me the piece to review, though, and it’s pretty funny. Instead of a standard-issue Q & A, they made Zach do a fill-in-the-blank style questionnaire. There are a few particularly hilarious moments (Zach’s answers are in all-caps):

Zach Galifianakis is everywhere: on the internet with Between Two Ferns; on HBO with a recurring role in Bored to Death; on network television as two-time host of SNL; even in the English lexicon, since his character in The Hangover did no less than redefine the pronunciation of the word retard. He returns to the big screen this May with a reprisal of that role in The Hangover Part II, but first, Zach G took a few minutes to help us solve some of the world’s most pressing problems, by way of fill-in-the-blanks. For instance:

“Personally, I think Sarah Palin is MARKETABLE and I would like to BUY her.”

I also got to meet KERMIT THE FROG. He was a much bigger FROG that you’d expect. The biggest downside was he is CONDESCENDING IN REAL LIFE.

We shot [The Hangover II] in Thailand which is fun because there you can GET INTO FIGHTS WITH PACKS OF STRAY DOGS.

People should know that global warming is caused by RUSH LIMBAUGH‘S FARTS. So our response should be to mandate that HE LIVE IN A SUBMARINE OFF THE COAST OF FLORIDA.

I would be a very good dad, the kind where people would say, “That’s Zach Junior; his dad is the one who SPANKS ALL THE CHILDREN BUT HIS OWN.”

Okay, I just spent way too much time reading that and laughing. I normally don’t even find Zach that funny, but this morning he’s just cracking me up. Speaking of, how AMAZING is this photo?

    The people at PETA will be angry for the last pic!!
    You can’t put a whale with ducks he might crush them!

  2. Andrea says:

    Yeah, he is hilarious, but didn’t need to see him in a bathtub this early in the morning…….come to think about it….any time of the day.

  3. ruru says:

    Those poor, poor duckies

  4. TQB says:

    Are those real ducks?? Hilarious. And yeah, I hear Kermit is a douche. It’s all the drugs, you know?

  5. silken_floss says:

    So gross >.<

  6. DON’T tell me you’re not gonna have a post on Scarlett Johansson’s fuller body

  7. Ellie says:

    He is trying too hard to make people think he is so funny and profound. Whatever!

  8. Snazzy says:

    I like him. Easy going, down to earth, laid-back guy that doesn’t take anything too serious. We need more guys like him.

  9. mln76 says:

    I love him he should take a break though because he’s getting over-exposed.

  10. Melanie says:

    I think he is highlarium! Hipster or not. SPANKS ALL CHILDREN BUT HIS OWN!

  11. Celebitchy says:

    @could be – what are we going to say about it? We don’t have the pics, so I can link to them and say she maybe looks pregnant? I don’t know. It’s not worth pointing it out if she just gained weight, because then I would feel bad.

  12. Hollowdoll says:

    Damn! He cracks me up! But then I’m a twisted individual. oh well. 😛

  13. KattyKat says:

    My mom always said to find the good in any situation:

    He’s less furry than I expected given his beard…He’s got bigger boobies than I do and I’m a D+ you go girl… oh right he’s not a girl…Well he’s a lot less furry than I expected. Um… NEXT

  14. Fire says:

    he’s hysterical!

  15. teehee says:

    I love Zach 😀 And T & E… I love intelligent humor, period–

  16. Anastasia says:

    I’d hit it. Twice.

    (For real.)

  17. @Celebitchy oh, I see. I agree it’s 50/50. tricky, isn’t it? can’t you call Scarlett’s rep and ask if she’s pregnant though?

  18. willynilly says:

    Feel bad?! Who ARE you?

    Nah, its just the tequila and burritos she’s stuffing down her throat along with that old man….

    OMG, I just threw up in my mouth.

  19. javagirl1 says:

    Between Two Ferns is the best.

  20. mln76 says:

    I love Between Two Ferns also I strongly recommend Comedy Death Ray Radio for anyone who has a really twisted sense of humor….Zach has made some funny appearances on the podcast and Jon Hamn has even co-hosted a couple of times.

  21. wunderkindt says:

    Those look like REAL ducklings. UH OH!!!

    Imagine-the-Future: Intense psychotherapy for depressed, self-mutilating adult ducks who were forced to be surrogate ‘bath tub underwear’ for an overly exposed densely furred Galifianakis during their formative years.

  22. KattyKat says:

    @cele|bitchy Feel bad? They do that to actresses all the time. By now The Aniston would have more kids and AJ if she were pregnant every time people have speculated. Heck AJ would have more kids than the Duggars.

  23. Enny says:

    That last picture reminds me of why there generally aren’t any nude photos of Zach. Nobody – and I mean NOBODY – wants to see any pictures that hide Zach’s peen behind thin, wispy bubbles and strategically placed baby ducklings. Ew.

  24. hoganbcmj says:

    What is it about him? He’s the perfect balance of aggravating and funny.

  25. anti says:

    i like him… he really looks like a younger richard dreyfus now!

  26. lucy2 says:

    I think he’s really funny. Him in the Annie dress on SNL? So weird, yet hilarious.

  27. spotchecker says:

    he reminds me of milo from bloom county, in a grown up, pothead kind of way.

  28. Ron says:

    You know funny lasts alot longer than pretty..just sayin.

  29. kwoww says:

    haha theres a duck on his ding a ling.

  30. gloaming says:

    Oh he seems like such a sweetie.

    His Funny or Die ‘Between two Ferns’ interviews are the best!

  31. Faye says:

    My bf kinda looks like him, but with less crazy hair and eyebrows. Crazy beard though. So I obviously love him. I like everything I’ve seen from him, but I can see how he’s not everyone’s cup of funny. Or adorable.

  32. I Choose Me says:

    I love Zach and I soooo would. Maybe it’s because he reminds me of another non-celebrity gentleman whom I had a short fling with. (TMI alert!) That guy rocked my box, er biscuits and I think Mr. Galifianakis would too.

  33. Lenore says:

    I am so glad there’s a little caption explaining what the substance in his beard is. I could not figure out what he was supposed to have face-dived into and I wasn’t sure I wanted to know.

  34. wunderkindt says:

    I need a drink now.
    But not Galifianakis ‘bath tub rum’.

  35. Betsy says:

    Oh, this made my day. Bored to Death is hysterical and I think ZG is the real deal. Love him and wouldn’t even mind being one of those duckies!

  36. Camille says:

    So fug. There really are no movie stars any more when men that look like this get to be famous and in movies. *shudder*

  37. Mairead says:

    “I also got to meet KERMIT THE FROG. He was a much bigger FROG that you’d expect. The biggest downside was he is CONDESCENDING IN REAL LIFE.”

    Now that is real celeb gossip! 😀

  38. animac says:

    he is the next best thing.
    love the witty humor.
    love the greek background

  39. KattyKat says:

    @camille there have always been ugly famous men two words: Ernest Borgnine. The man looks like a pug and not because he is 90 years old. I have a much desire to see young Ernest in the nude as I did to see Zach G. He may or may not be funny, creepy funny, maybe? but he is not what most of us what to see nude. It’s actually kind of sexist. They would never put Mimi from the Drew Carey Show naked in a bathtub to have her body critiqued by a bunch of repulsed men. And for that I am thankful.

  40. Camille says:

    @KattyKat: I know all of that and I agree with you ;).
